Change parameter in build configuration

Completed

Hi

I need to change a configuration parameter in a build configuration, but I am not sure how to do it.

I tried to replace the existing value with a new one, but it is not possible to save it.

What is the process

Hello!

Could you please confirm the operation you are trying to do? Do you want to replace an existing value in build step/VCS root/etc with a configuration parameter, or do you want to update the value of existing parameter? 
If you could provide a screenshot illustrating the issue that would be very appreciated.

The general information regarding parameter usage may be found here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/teamcity/configuring-build-parameters.html#configuring-build-parameters.md

Sorry for the Delay, it is following parameter I would like change.

Are some limitations which character I can enter as value.

Can the value contain a dot or slashes?.

Hello,

My apologies for the delayed response here. Yes, the value can contain these symbols.
Could you please let me know if you have an issue with the data stored in the parameter?

Hello

How do I save the value after I have changed it, I only have opportunities to 'Reset' as you can see in my screenshot.

As far as I could see, the screen on the above screenshot is an interface for triggering a custom build (https://www.jetbrains.com/help/teamcity/triggering-a-custom-build.html):

Please mind that this interface allows to change a parameter for an ad-hoc execution (say, for a quick test run); any changes made here will not amend the parameter value as set in the configuration itself. If that is what you aim to do, Run Build will start a build with a parameter changed.

If you want to amend the parameter in the configuration itself, please head to the Parameters tab in the configuration context:

Update the parameter value and press "Save":


This will update the parameter value for the builds of this configuration going forward.
Perchance you will also find this article useful: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/teamcity/configuring-build-parameters.html (this is a summary on build parameters configuration and usage).
